Rocky, I dunno what or where you have been but, salting a vessel was common practice in the times of wooden ships and iron men, or something like that.
Problem is/was that they were iron fastened and you do recall what happens to iron in the presence of salt?
FRESH AIR is the ticket here, nice flowing fresh air. Clean bilges, and flowing fresh air. Decay needs oxygen and electolysis needs a conductor so water and salt are not good things, folla?
